Style Cramp fashion radar: Lanvin X H&M | Zara online

Yesterday was an exciting day for UK fashion!
Firstly, the rumours have been confirmed: Lanvin is collaborating with H&M. Style Cramp loves Lanvin. Lux and out of our price range, as are most coveted things, so this could be ACE. As Lanvin himself puts it:
"It [isn't] a project about a dress for less. I think that I loved the idea that H&M was going luxury, rather than Lanvin was going public."
Nothing wrong with Lanvin going public in our eyes - fashion's for everyone. BUT, if the outcome is anything like the cheap and tacky Sonia Rykiel for H&M in 2009, this just won't work. Tacky shoes and cheapo underwear.
See the artistic director Alber Elbaz tell it for himself:

Isn't he great? Like a funny little fashion Ronnie Corbet.
